Happy Thanksgiving! Wait, you're unbearably annoyed with your family already? To help avoid a holiday-induced panic, here are a few spots you can duck out to while everyone's arguing about cranberry sauce. Williamsburg watering hole Brooklyn Ale House and merry Upper East Side joint Brandy's Piano Bar open up just as you should be finishing your feast (their hours today are 7pm to 4am and 8pm to 4am, respectively). And if you're looking for an early escape, try plenty of the 40 brews at midtown's Rattle N Hum all day long (it's $55 for an all-you-can-eat, open-bar package from 2 to 10pm). Are you looking for a deal? Just mention Time Out New York for exclusive discounts on the Three-Finger Brown at the Jake Walk (282 Smith St at Sackett St, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn; 347-599-0294, thejakewalk.com; 6pm--2am) or the signature cocktail at the Dead Poet (450 Amsterdam Ave between 81st and 82nd Sts; 212-595-5670, thedeadpoet.com; 8pm--4am). Then stumble home and be thankful you survived the day.
